You said yes to the big question and now it’s time to plan the wedding. A destination wedding is a great excuse to get away and tie the knot with the love of your life in an exotic, picturesque location.

The downside to destination weddings is that they tend to be more expensive than a wedding in your hometown. Once you factor in the cost of flight tickets, the venue and hotel rooms, you might begin to have second thoughts and think about packing it up and just getting married in a beautiful venue near your home.

But a destination wedding doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. For one, you can get group discounts on flight tickets or even get most of your guests to pay for their travel if it’s not too much of a hassle for them. You can also have your honeymoon at your wedding destination which saves money on an extra trip.

Here’s a list of some affordable locations for your dream destination wedding.
